Wednesday Farmers Market moves indoors starting Oct. 6

Kathleen Dickson, market manager for the Wednesday Farmers Market at the Chetco Grange Community Center, announced that the market will be moving indoors, Wednesday, Oct. 6.

Every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., shoppers will continue to find fresh produce from local farms, homemade, special bakery goodies, jams and jellies, and hot ready-to-eat specialties, plus arts and crafts from local artisans.

Dickson said, “In addition to local farmers and food artisans, we will have a few local crafters and artists, including Vi and Len Burton and jewelry artist Jean Johnston.”

She noted, “The market will flow well from outdoor to indoor, and this should help customers who enjoy shopping the market weekly.”

In addition to the Burtons and Johnston, others currently on the list of those ready to market their food and art at the indoor farmers’ market are Ocean Air Farms, Riyes Cottage Garden, Flora Pacifica, Fernwood Woolworks, Robin Hauser, Cathey’s Cookies, Cakes & Candies, chef Paul Grossi, and Village Baker, with more expected to join.

Specialties to be offered include, in addition to lots of fresh produce, the goat cheese, quiche and wild mushrooms from Robin Hauser’s local farm and hot biscuits and gravy and hearty soup served on the premises by chef Grossi, a master, professionally trained culinary artist.

Dickson emphasized that on Wednesdays the indoor winter market will be a great place to find an exciting array of comfort foods and creative gifts for the holidays.

The Grange Hall is located at 97895 Shopping Center Ave., Harbor.

  • Investors look to earnings for market direction
    Investors attempting to determine whether U.S. equities will rebound from Friday's selloff or continue to sink will look to a deluge of earnings next week for a clearer picture of the economy. Equities lost ground after industrials Honeywell International and General Electric took hits from the strong dollar, while concerns over new trading regulations in China and Greece's place in the euro zone dented sentiment. Investors have grown concerned about the impact of a strong dollar on quarterly results, even as they remain leery of missing out on any rally. "Our markets will get kind of quiet again as we wait for some of those earnings and what is going to happen on the 24th with Greece," said Keith Bliss, senior vice-president at Cuttone & Co in New York.
  • Comcast, Time Warner Cable to meet DoJ officials over merger: WSJ
    The meeting next Wednesday would aim to negotiate possible concessions addressing those concerns, the Journal said, citing people familiar with the matter. Staffers at both the Justice Department and the Federal Communications Commission remain concerned the combined company would have too much power in the Internet broadband market and would have unfair competitive leverage against TV channel owners and businesses offering online video programming, the Journal said. Representatives of the two companies and the Justice Department did not immediately respond to Reuters' requests for comment on the Journal report. News of the planned meeting followed a report by Bloomberg on Friday that staff attorneys at the Justice Department's antitrust division were nearing a recommendation to block the deal.
  • IMF nations point to exchange rate, geopolitical risks
    While economies in developed countries have strengthened, some emerging nations are being hit by weaker commodity prices and exports, the IMF's steering committee noted in a communique. With the United States poised to hike interest rates, the panel - speaking for the Fund's 188 member nations - said moves toward "policy normalization" needed to be effectively communicated to reduce adverse impacts on other economies. "I came out of this meeting with a sense of optimism," the chairman, Mexican Finance Minister Agustin Carstens, said. The spring meetings of the IMF and World Bank, which conclude on Sunday, have taken place amid growing concerns cash-strapped Greece will fail to reach agreement with its European Union and IMF creditors on reforms that would unlock bailout cash and stave off default.
